The Reason Why Kylian Mbappe And Adrien Rabiot Were Late For PSG Team Meeting

The Reason Why Kylian Mbappe And Adrien Rabiot Were Late For PSG Team Meeting

Kylian Mbappe and Adrien Rabiot were punished for being late to a team meeting ahead of the game against Marseille on Sunday and it's emerged just why they were not there on time.

Mbappe was scheduled to start the game but ended up being relegated to the bench by Thomas Tuchel, though he did come on as sub to score the opening goal in the 2-0 win.

A "technical talk" was scheduled at five, a few hours before the game at the Orange Velodrome, with Tuchel going out key details.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Mbappe and Rabiot were both late because they were watching the end of Barcelona's 5-1 drubbing of Real Madrid in El Clasico at the Nou Camp.

Whilst watching another game isn't exactly a crime and plenty of people will have been late for work because of the football, it probably doesn't cut it as an excuse and you can see why Tuchel made an example of them.

Julian Draxler, who started in place of Rabiot in midfield and scored the team's second goal in stoppage time, defended with his manager's decision.

"It's one thing between the coach and the two players, " he told L'Equipe, as per Four Four Two.

"The coach has shown that the club is more important than the individuals."

Following the important victory on Sunday, PSG are now eight points clear of Lille at the top of the table, having won all eleven of their Ligue One fixtures so far.
